Question 1 –
I think the only advice I can give is to take it slow, try one new strategy. Adapt for your kiddos. My first graders are not going to have the same skills and lessons that 5th graders would need.
Question 2 and 3 --
My ideas are still forming. I just met my brand new class on Wednesday. I can see great close reading potential, but I still need to get to know them. I have several students that may be ready to be stretched during a guided reading lesson in September. I also have students needing work on letter identification and letter sounds. So I need to find a balance to provide lessons for each student to achieve maximum growth!
